2022 wasn’t favorable for Bollywood as there were very few movies that were successful in terms of box office collection. On the other hand, south Indian movies broke so many records and were hailed by millions of people across the nation giving rise to a never-ending Bollywood vs South debate.
While south movies like RRR, KGF Chapter 2, and others received positive feedback, much-anticipated movies like Laal Singh Chaddha, Liger, Dhaakad, and others brutally failed at the box office.
Only a few Hindi movies like Brahmastra, The Kashmir Files, and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 performed well in terms of collection.
